Driving through any neighborhood you see many houses with well-manicured lawns, great landscaping but on many of the homes, there is one big detriment to their curb appeal. It’s one of the most common ailments affecting homes all over Marlton, black streaks on the roof. No matter how great the landscaping or how bright and clean the house is, black streaks on a roof have a way of standing out and not in a good way. While they represent more than just a dent in your curb appeal they are not something you have to live with. At Diamond Roof Cleaning our soft wash roof cleaning service is the most trusted way to safely remove black streaks from your roof, and there are some good reasons why you should do so.
What The Black Streaks Represent
The underlying cause of black streaks aren’t mineral runoff or dirt, it’s bacteria. If you have ever done any research into why those black streaks are on your roof then you have likely come across the name Gloeocapsa Magma. This bacteria is carried about by the wind looking for a place just like your roof to call home. The asphalt shingles on your roof are an ideal home for this voracious feeder as it thrives on the filler material (typically limestone) found in modern shingles. So as the bacteria grows and replicates you start to see black patches at first, then black streaks as the colony expands. These streaks represent a real problem because the bacteria is eating away at your shingles, leaving behind a brittle, less efficient roof system that will need repairs, or possibly replacement, much faster than normal!
